|skm.sa100#45742 date: Jul-9-2021|
flare control: 4
|ownership:||I own this lens|
|compared to:||Sigma 70-200/2.8|
|price paid:||50 USD (used)|
|positive:||Light. Small. Cheap. |
Very good performer for its price point.
Minolta colors. Well built.
|negative:||Not super sharp. Some CA but that's common to almost all AF lenses of that era.|
1/2 mile MFD! :)
Don't expect prime level sharpness or sharpness similar to a 70-200/2.8 zoom.
|comment:||I got mine pristine for USD 50 including the leather case.|
What I like about this lens is that it is a good bit smaller than the beercan and can fit into a bag easily.
For me, the only serious shortcoming is the rather long MFD. Other than that it's a pretty nifty lens and the f/4.5 isn't too slow, especially on a sunny day.
